Ive chuckled in the past at that same moderator closing posts just because he didnt agree with someones opinion. Kind of comical how big some peoples egos are!! Sure no loss to me. I kind of feel like an outlaw as its the first time ive ever been banned from a fourm!
It begs for me to ask you... Did you happen to read the users agreement when you initially signed up for the forum? I already know the answer but I want to hear it from you.....
Forums like that and this one ar privately owned and administrated and those owners are free to act as arbitrarily as they wish when it comes to moderation and/or banning a poster.
Your participation on this forum or any other forum will be governed by that particular users agreement. You obviously violated the agreement.
People tend to forget that nothing is free on the Interet, especially forums..... This one included.
Always good to know the rules before inserting one's foot in one's posterior.
